White Dawn Climbing Rose (Rosa ‘White Dawn’)
White Dawn Climbing Rose
Brighten your landscape with the showy, fragrant blooms of the White Dawn® Climbing Rose (Rosa ‘White Dawn’)! These gorgeous, vigorous rambling climbers will be absolutely covered in ruffled, ivory-white blooms with up to 35 petals apiece!
Although the large, semi-double blooms of White Dawn® Rose resemble Gardenia, they feature a sweet Rose scent and high-contrast dark green foliage. Enjoy the blooms in your garden, or cut them for incredible floral arrangements indoors!
One of the most disease-resistant Climbing Roses, White Dawn® produces wave after wave of white blooms from late spring through fall. Leave the last blooming flush of the autumn season to develop into pretty red hips for birds and winter decoration! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9, this wonderful climbing ornamental has strong, flexible canes for easy landscape décor!
Use White Dawn® as an effective privacy screen on a trellis, a boon for small space gardens! You get a lot of coverage from White Dawn®, in exchange for a minimal footprint and vertical interest anywhere in the sun! Turn an eyesore into a feature. Old chain link fences and TV antennae can become a bower of snowy, fragrant blooms! These white blossoms are a must-have for vertical interest in a Moon Garden.
Even a single White Dawn® Rose can be trained to cover a tall tower, pillar, or obelisk. Place these garden structures in your mixed garden border and achieve year-round interest! Tie Climbing Rose canes at a 45-degree angle to your sturdy structure for the most prolific flowering. Flexible landscape ties are strong, but won’t bind the canes too tightly.
On slopes, try Climbing Roses as an effective groundcover and barrier planting! Space them four feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next. Use it to create privacy and living walls covered in fragrant Rose wallpaper, or cover unsightly siding, and fences, and add shade to seating areas with a Climbing Rose placed at key locations around your landscape.
Choose a planting site with full sun and well-drained soil. Give Roses a consistent, even amount of water and regular Rose food to support the abundant bloom production. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to the planting hole to provide a life-long resource, and keep your Rose roots happy with a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist bark chips.
How to Train Climbing Roses
Pruning should not be done during the first two years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes.
Read all you need about pruning Roses, winterizing Roses, and un-wintering Roses in spring in our #ProPlantTips Garden Blog! Every three years, practice renewal pruning to keep White Dawn® Climbing Rose growing and blooming vigorously. Untie the canes after the first flush of flowers is finished, then prune the oldest, thickest canes out at ground level and retie the young, thin canes.
Grow vertical walls of delightful white blossoms with the White Dawn® Climbing Rose! Fragrance, bright blooms, and small-footprint flowering ornamentals are waiting for you today!
